Hi guys! Today I have a Makeup Geek haul for you! Around the holidays they had a sale on quite a few of their items so I thought that was the perfect opportunity to pick up a few more of their products. I already own and love quite a few of their foiled eye shadows but I had always been meaning to try more. With the Canadian dollar and cost of shipping what it currently is, I was holding out for some kind of sale. Makeup Geek is already a very reasonably priced and quality brand though. For this haul, I picked up the Kathleenlights Highlighter Palette (Kathleenlights AND highlighters? How could I not?) and a few of their eye shadow pans and a blush!
Makeup Geek | Kathleenlights Highlighter Palette
I had teased this product on my Instagram when it arrived in the mail in all of it’s glory. It contains three shades, it is meant to have one for every skin tone. Mixed though, I think even fair skinned gals like myself could get use out of all three.
So far, my favourite to use is Starlight as I have a bit of an obsession with pink highlighters at the moment. This palette arrived before my second haul so I have used the highlighters a little bit and I’mr really enjoying the formula of them. They are smooth and blend nicely into the skin. Each shade shimmers rather than being chunky.
Makeup Geek | Single Eye Shadow Pans & Blush Pan
After quite a bit of thought and deliberation, I also picked up some of their single eye shadow pans and one blush pan. I tried to add colours that would be unique to my collection or ones that just simply stood out to me.
Peach Smoothie | If you watch Jaclyn Hill, you have likely never seen her do a tutorial without this transition shade. I don’t really have anything like it and after seeing it so often on her channel, I needed to grab this one to try it for myself. I used it last night and really enjoyed how it warmed up a relatively cool toned look without clashing.
High Tea | This shade just seemed really unique to me, its almost like a cross between a brown and an army green. It’s a matte shade and I can’t wait to see what kind of looks it inspires me to create.
Anarchy | While reds and warm tones aren’t really unique to my collection, I checked out swatches of this one before choosing it and I was really impressed. I feel like I can never own too many red/warm shades because I get so much use out of them!
Toxic | If I’m not hoarding warm eye shadows – purples would be a close second! I picked this one up as I thought it would pair perfectly with Phantom (which I’ll talk about next).
Phantom | I’d be lying if I said Makeup Geek’s duo chrome range didn’t intrigue me from the moment I laid eyes on them. Phantom always caught my eye as it is a white/purple duo chrome. Simply stunning.
Typhoon | Another duo chrome! This was another one that always caught my eye when I saw it mentioned on the Makeup Geek YouTube channel or Snapchat! I love wearing green eye shadows as they really bring out the green in my eyes.
Secret Admirer | I had also been wanting to try their blush pans for quite some time. I don’t own any lavender blushes so I immediately put Secret Admirer into my cart without a second thought. I thought this would pair beautifully with the Colourpop Highlighter I picked up not too long ago – Hippo! I wore this last night and it is pigmented but so smooth and blendable.
I’m super excited to really get into these products and put them to the test. I am confident that they will not disappoint. Makeup Geek is a wonderful company, they really work hard on making quality products at an affordable price. They are also cruelty-free and their products are made in the USA. If the Canadian dollar wasn’t so bad, I’d definitely be placing Makeup Geek orders more frequently. I’d really love to try some of their makeup brushes next, or their duo chrome highlighters…
